Domestic and family violence against women began to be considered a crime after the approval of Law n. 11,340, on August 7, 2006, which was later known as the Maria da Penha Law. This law creates mechanisms to restrain and prevent aggression based on family/cohabitation, and has become an instrument of social transformation throughout its 11 years of existence.

In this context, it is important to understand and be able to recognize the types of violence in order to help countless victims to denounce their aggressors.

The cycle of violence

Women who are victims of domestic and family violence are subjected to a cycle that repeats itself, in which 3 main phases of aggression can be identified: increased tension, act of violence, repentance, and caring behavior.

When violence ends,
life goes on.

Preventing
and combating violence

Information is a great ally to women when it comes to domestic and family violence: it is necessary to know the many forms of aggression and to promote access to the Maria da Penha Law on a large scale.

In addition to educational actions capable of fighting gender stereotypes and inequalities in the power relations between men and women, there are many instruments to assist and protect women in violent situations.

The world changes
or those who react.
